“Wonderful Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Found this restaurant while off a cruise ship here in Nawiliwili Bay. It has a wonderful location on the upper level overlooking the beach. Very accessable to guests of the nearby Marriot hotel complex.

We just had a couple of beers and nachos but the welcome was sincere and the beers served very cold and the natchos good. The platters we saw were very appealing. All this at very reasonable prices.

“best mexican food on Kauai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Interesting menu, good service, very reasonable prices. This restaurant opened about four years ago in a small dead-end shopping center that is the graveyard of many shops and restaurants. The best evidence of how good they are is that they are full ad dinner time on Monday, AND their customers are mostly local folks. BTW, breakfast is also excellent.

“Very average Mexican food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Maybe it is just Hawaii, but we foundf the service to be very slow almost everywhere. This place was slower than average - one servcer for the main dining area.. Food was not at all spicy. However, the fish tacos were tasty and the guacamole was above average.

“Excited to see an authentic Mexican restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We all four ordered taco salads, ground beef were terrible, cold meat, few black beans, mainly lettuce and some sour cream and guacamole on top. Same for chicken and shredded beef. Will it have that again, also refills on soft drinks were extra and also extra for additional chips and salsa.

“Serviceable Mexican fare”

If you're jonesing for Mexican food in Kauai, this is place to go! We stopped in for lunch after taking our helicopter tour of the island. Great value, and really good food.
